Amy M. raised $356 for her cause, California Clean Money Campaign!
California Clean Money Campaign is a non-profit committed to ensuring an accountable and transparent government, through building support for publicly funded election campaigns. Private, big-money donations fuel campaigns across America, and skew the favor of politicians towards special interest groups that can fund them. Clean Money campaigns have been successful in several other states already, notably Maine and Arizona. The California Clean Money Campaign wants to see that same initiative enacted in California, and supports the CA DISCLOSE Act. Their grassroots efforts to support publicly funded campaigns have paid off with steps towards greater transparency in California campaign financing – SB 844 (mandating online transparency of the top ten campaign funders for/against propositions) was signed into law in 2014.
To fund Amy’s personal shopping and donation success, iGive has partnered with SkincareByAlana.com to give her a super shopper prize of a June Jacobs At Home Spa Kit (worth $168).

The Stymie Canine Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit foundation that raises funds for families in need of financial support for the cost of cancer treatment for their pet. Cancer is the #1 disease killing pets over the age of 10 years old.
Aimee wrote in to tell us: “We’ve been helping families with the cost of cancer treatment for their pets. In 3 years we have granted over $70,000 to families whose pets have cancer and cross translation research to help find cures for both human and pet cancers. We work hard to make sure every pet has a fighting chance and to give families that extra time with their loved ones.”
Who is Stymie?

BeGood provides eco friendly clothing at direct-to-consumer prices. Creating a premium product and minimizing our environmental impact needn’t be mutually exclusive. BeGood pursues a planet-friendly production cycle from start to finish.

Their own stated Radical Belief: “Our ambitious mission is to be the first closed-loop retailer. It has gone mostly overlooked that big retail is the second most pollutive industry on earth. Today, we produce about 10% of the chemical and water waste of a conventional manufacturer. By examining our supply chain from seed to stitch, we believe we can expose holes in the industry and work to fix them. Like you, we’re passionately curious.”
National parks are considered by many as one of the national treasures of the United States. Every year they provide campgrounds, recreation areas, and swathes of protected forests and lakes and rivers for the multitudes of visitors hoping to escape into nature. The national park system is operating on an ever-tightening budget, causing many roads to fall into disrepair, rangers to have to cover ground further and further away, and irreplaceable historical sites are receiving less maintenance every year.

Enter Revisit Products: they are dedicated to giving as much as they can to the national parks with their “Quarter Back” program. Revisit donates a full 25% of their profits to designated national parks, working with them to determine where their money could make the most impact. At the moment, they’re working with four parks, on projects ranging from a youth core employment program in Glacier National Park to buying and maintaining bikes for the rangers in Independence Historical Park.
The Children’s Orchestra Society is dedicated to enriching the lives of young musicians. COS teaches “the language of music”, training its members in classical music and finding performance opportunities with both peers and professional musicians. COS nurtures each individual child, developing ‘tailor-made’ parts so that children at different levels can participate together in the rewarding group experience of a full orchestra.
COS makes a difference every day in the lives of children and teens, teaching them teamwork, life skills, and joy in music through learning and performing in orchestra and chamber-music settings. As one former COS member said,
“COS was my very first orchestral experience, clearly one that has touched my life in immeasurable ways. I know that I would not be doing what I am doing now were it not for those incredible years of fun music-making.”
This month, Rodney B. is our super shopper extraordinaire! He raised $348 for his cause, Rock Run Animal Rescue.
Rock Run Animal Rescue is a home-grown animal rescue in Pennsylvania, begun when the founder (Jo) realized they had already taken in over 25 animals in need, from cats to chickens to goats to horses. Rock Run is both a rescue and a healing center – focusing on holistic healing for the animals under their care. This involves a combination of alternative healing methods and traditional veterinary medicine.
For his efforts, Rodney will receive a $150 gift card from Amazon!
